If you’ve had the joy of visiting The Spa at Briarcliff, you probably had a difficult time tearing yourself away from the plush and indulgent surroundings. But who says you can’t take some cues from this beautiful refuge and apply them in your own bathroom?Mediterranean Bathroom by Austin Home Builders Sterling Custom Homes
While you may not be able to mimic the waterfalls found in the European suite at The Spa at Briarcliff, you can make yourself feel every bit as relaxed and pampered when you enter your own bathroom with these design tips:
Set a soothing atmosphere with a subdued color palette – Try cream and cocoa-colored walls and sand-colored tile complemented by walnut cabinetry and furniture. A splash of gold accents provide visual interest and a touch of elegance. Wicker baskets to hold towels and toiletries and the restrained use of rubber plants and other greenery complete what’s indisputably a décor that evokes an upscale, Malibu beach house.
Install soft lighting that has a distinct purpose – Over sinks, counters, mirrors and baths, these soft lights, also known as task lighting, are augmented by recessed lighting everywhere else. Candles grouped in threes invite you to come in and stay a while.
Frame a seaside portrait in a whimsical, vertical scroll frame – This decorative touch gives the impression of a window with a great view. Of course you’ll know it’s not an actual window, but that’s not the point. This design idea can do wonders for windowless bathrooms and even small ones that otherwise cry out for a focal point.
No matter what the size of your bathroom, you can emulate the luxury of The Spa at Briarcliff. Let Interiors by Melody show you how so you can begin pampering yourself in your very own home spa.
